PNPA Poultry Show

We went to the Spring show of the Pacific Northwest Poultry Association last weekend.  Madeline loves attending this show and works really hard to get ready every year.  Marah showed as well this year.  It was a beautiful, sunny day.  We spent the day looking at all kinds of poultry, both girls participated in showmanship, visited with friends, and went the the great playground that is next to the fair grounds.

Congratulations to Madeline who won Reserve Champion in the Junior Showmanship Class.  Marah participated in the primary class and did an excellent job as well.

This year Maddy is showing chickens and a miniature donkey.  Marah is showing rabbits and chickens.  Michael is showing rabbits.  I never thought I would be the mom with a house full of animals.  At this time we have: 8 rabbits- 3 of which are pregnant and due in a week or so, 2 cats, 2 rats, 7 bantam show hens, about 15 (or so) bantam show chicks, 4 market pullets (Maddy's auction project), and 8 new laying hen chicks.

Do you have any animals in your house or out of your house?

Cute! I did some 4H when I was a kid, although we mostly did crafty things but I did have a rabbit once!
